For once
Once when the
Sound of the wind
Moved the earth
And when the bird’s screech
Lifted the mountains of
The west

For once
We overlook the cold
Soil we live on

As we turn over our
Personality, seeping
Deep under the roots
Of the great tree

And the roots slowly
Fill our once meaningful
Bodies

For once we
Shined, as bright as the
Sun and
Spoke to the people
Passing through
This world
